What, am I in high school again? I am currently exploring the Tolkein/Led Zeppelin connection by re-reading all of the books and cranking up Houses of the Holy. It's great fun. And can you believe how young the band is? They're just kids!
Here is a DELECTABLE recipe for all you peanut sauce-lovers:
SPINACH TOFU WITH PEANUT SAUCE
Peanut Sauce: 1/2 c peanut butter 1/2 c hot water 1/2 c brown rice vinegar 2 T tamari sauce 1 T agave nectar (or honey) 1T molasses 1T chopped fresh cilantro pinch of red pepper flakes
Spinach Tofu: 2 T olive oil 1 1/2 c chopped onion 1 package firm silken tofu 4 cloves garlic, chopped very fine 1 T finely chopped fresh ginger 1 bunch spinach washed and chopped pepper/salt 16 oz package rice noodles
Mix together sauce ingredients in a medium-size bowl and set aside.
In a large skillet, heat the oil and saute the onion until soft, 3-4 minutes. Add the tofu and continue to cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the spinach and cook until it is wilted. Add the peanut sauce and heat through. Season with salt and lots of pepper. Serve over the cooked noodles. Warning: It is so good you won't be able to stop eating it.
